I had a look this afternoon and the Noddy showed really well for the hour or so
I was there between 12.30 to 1.30 p.m., perched on a rock (pretty much ignoring
several fishermen who were very close by it) and preening for quite a while,
and then foraging among the breakers.

> The Black Noddy is still at Long Reef - at 7am this morning (17 April) it
> was fishing in the surf just off the seaward end of the reef. Also seen on
> the reef flat many Ruddy Turnstones & Red Necked Stint - at least 5 in
> breeding colours - 12 Sooty Oystercatchers, 1 Golden Plover, 20+ Double
> Banded Dotterel (Adults & Immature birds with buffy coloured heads) and 4
> Grey Tailed Tattler.
> The tide was high today at 10am or thereabouts so was coming in when I was
> there and was over the lowest parts of the reef flat as I left at 7:15, so I
> had to paddle back to land (I was expecting this and had my crummiest shoes
> on), so morning visits looking better over the next few days.
